Hello guys, the painting is by Annie Teo, and I wrote my thoughts. She did it while she was in London, and this is a Plein Air style of painting with line and wash. I am not that brave to paint like this. So Annie, bravo for having that courage👏👏. I wish I had that confidence🙄🙄.
Plein air style means you paint or draw while you are outdoors. Here Annie has painted the Tower Bridge in a whimsical style with pen and painted loosely. I just loved it😅😅😅. Her reason was that it was difficult to find a good postcard😉😉. Hence, as an artist, she created the Tower Bridge as her postcard.
Tower Bridge has never fallen, unlike London bridge. It is 125 years old and has become an icon for London. However, Tower Bridge is often confused with London Bridge.
We are familiar with the song of Humpty Dumpty and London Bridge falling during our childhood. Hmm, now when I think about it, it is a sad song☹. Why were we singing that song with hand gestures about falling😒😒. Well, that is a million-dollar question, and I don’t have any answers. Do you have any thoughts that you can share?
Till the following musings, stay safe, and peace be with you🙏🙏🙂.
